Chris Wallace may have been the biggest winner in Wednesday night's presidential debate. On the air and on Twitter the "Fox News Sunday" host won rave reviews for maintaining order and getting the candidates to address substantive issues.

In a contentious final debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, Wallace was credited with getting both to largely stay focused.

"… The 'Fox News Sunday' host pressed Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on matters pertaining to the U.S. economy, America's foreign policy and the Supreme Court, while also addressing pressing questions about both candidates' fitness to lead," summed up CNN's Dylan Byers. "Wallace was widely praised for his performance by fellow journalists, political operatives on both sides of the aisle, and even a few celebrities."

Forbes' Brett Edkins, who cover politics and the media, hailed Wallace for focusing on issues largely ignored in the previous two debates, like abortion, guns, immigration, entitlements, and the national debt.

"Chris Wallace of Fox News proved to be an excellent moderator," said Edkins. "He effectively controlled the candidates and the audience, and asked tough questions, often from a conservative point of view, prompting substantive exchanges between the candidates."

Twitter, for the most part, was wild about Wallace's performance, the first for a Fox News host, and included some big names in news media.
